Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing first ∠1° of ♏ Scorpio tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1969" and ∠1927".
Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2047 after 14 days on 2 November 2047 at 16:58.
There is high New Moon ocean tide on this date. Combined Sun and Moon gravitational tidal force working on Earth is strong, because of the Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
At 03:28 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 591 of Meeus index or 1544 from Brown series.
29 days, 9 hours and 31 minutes is the length of new lunation 591. It is 1 hour and 8 minutes shorter than next lunation 592 length.
Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 13 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 2 hours and 56 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠346.8°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠2.2°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep increasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of apogee (∠180°).
Moon is reaching point of perigee on this date at 21:58, this is 12 days after last apogee on 7 October 2047 at 08:53 in ♉ Taurus. Lunar orbit is starting to get wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth for 15 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next apogee on 3 November 2047 at 16:20 in ♉ Taurus.
This perigee Moon is 357 956 km (222 424 mi) away from Earth. It is 4 552 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 12 400 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.
7 days after its descending node on 11 October 2047 at 12:21 in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 4 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 24 October 2047 at 02:50 in ♑ Capricorn.

9 days after previous North standstill on 9 October 2047 at 18:12 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠24.802°. Next 3 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-24.711° in the next southern standstill on 22 October 2047 at 17:18 in ♐ Sagittarius.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
